Book description

This Companion volume offers a concise and engaging introduction to the New Testament. Including twenty-two especially-commissioned essays, written by an international team of scholars, it examines a range of topics related to the historical and religious contexts in which the contents of the Christian canon emerged. Providing an overview of the critical approaches and methods currently applied to the study of biblical texts, it also includes chapters on each of the writings in the New Testament. The volume serves as an excellent resource for students who have some familiarity with the New Testament and who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the state of academic discussion and debate. Readers will also gain a sense of the new research questions that are emerging from current scholarship.


‘Overall, the volume offers a wonderful overview for beginning students or curious readers and effectively presents the issues in New Testament studies. Thus, it is a guide for those who wish to take a deeper dive into any particular facet of the New Testament. Every essay includes helpful footnotes, and suggestions for further reading appear at the end of each essay. A useful index of both names and concepts offers quick referencing ... Recommended.’
